Publisher's Summary

Christ knew that the splendor of heaven is too great for us to bear just now, and so he used parables as clues to the mystery of paradise. In them are hints of heaven, and they offer profound spiritual advice meant to guide us on the road to eternal glory.

In our age Christ's parables are often reduced to exercises in moralism. In this program Fr. George Rutler, acclaimed author and EWTN television host, unveils these deceptively simple stories, showing you their hidden meanings and how they apply to our own age and way of life.

Let Fr. Rutler take you on an enriching tour of scripture's 24 parables as you learn:

  • Tares in the Field of the Lord: Why it's necessary that scandals beset the Church and how it brings about a stronger harvest.
  • The Mustard Seed: Why it gave hope to the early Church and prefigures her glorious future.
  • The Yeast: How God speaks in a gentle and inward voice that melts the soul, and how you could be drowning him out.
  • The Hidden Treasure: Are you responding properly to the unique gifts Christ has given you?
  • The Net: Many will be sifted out. How to be sure you are among the souls he keeps.
  • The Unmerciful Servant: Not only must you forgive, you must convert the offender. Are you a channel for God's grace?
  • Laborers in the Vineyard: Are you letting selfishness and pride get in the way of the salvation of your neighbor's soul?
  • The Two Sons: The dangers of agnosticism. Are you guilty? You may be astonished at the answer.
  • The Marriage of the King's Son: Why frequent reception of the sacraments is necessary for dwelling at the wedding feast.
  • The 10 Virgins: There's a difference between watching and being prepared for Christ's return. Are you ready?
  • The 10 Talents: God has given you a special gift. Do you know what it is and how you should use it?

    "excellent book and narration. terrible software."

    Audible failed to deliver this product as advertised. No immersion, no chapter choice in play function, will not play again after completion.

    "Informative"
    What did you love best about Hints of Heaven?

    Fr Rutler is a brilliant man who interpreted the parables of Christ and very effectively related them to modern society.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jesus, obviously.


    What about John Haynes Walker’s performance did you like?

    Walker has a very pleasant voice and he expertly tackled the many non-standard words that Rutler has a tendency to use when writing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it's just over 3 hours and is very fast moving. I've queued it up to listen again.

    "Illuminating"

    With the wit of GK and the poetry of CS, Fr. Rutler helped me to delight in the truth of the parables and appreciate their beauty. This little book is as enthralling as it is enlightening.
